European Modern: Master Artists from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
August 23 through January 5, 2014
Opening Reception: September 5 from 6-8 p.m.
Hand-selected works from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will travel to Abingdon for this extraordinary exhibition. Visitors will have the opportunity to delight in the drawn and painterly techniques that span generations of important European artists as they journeyed away from the defined edges of Neoclassicism and toward the uninhibited marks of the Modern Era. Artists on view include Neoclassicists, English Painters, and German Expressionists. Become acquainted with works by the famous French Impressionists such as Degas, Cezanne, Toulouse Lautrec, Van Gogh, and many other memorable names from art history.
Saturday, October 19, 1-5 p.m.
Figure Drawing and Plein Air Watercolor Workshop
